Congratulations to the Baltz family!

Aside from my obsession with papercrafting, I've been doing a bit of knitting.  These are my third pair of booties... lots of girlfriends having babies these days.

This cute little box houses a yellow pair of non-gender booites, a onesie to match and burpie.  The booties and burpie were a breeze but the onesie was a little more daunting of a task for me... not sure I'll try applique anytime in the near future... it was hard to perfect for me... I'm a bit of a perfectionist I have to say and keeping those shapes straight (even after pinning) was hard and then trying to finagle this itty bitty onesie around my sewing machine... ughhh!

I hope Baby Baltz feels the love when wearing them.  A friend was looking at my ensemble and questioned the onesie... what is it?  Well, it resembles an elephant... or, yes, an anteater if you wish!!  :-}

Teacher Appreciation... End of School Year

So I missed Teacher Appreciation week which was the first week of May... I believe!  This is Renee's first year of school (well, preschool) so I need to get the hang of everything and when and what is done for holidays... there's a lot to be remembered!

I was at Trader Joes doing a little shopping and came across some schoolhouse alphabet cookies and bought them knowing Renee would get a kick out of them.  Epiphany... What a perfect fit for teacher appreciation gifts for the end of the year.  Renee's teachers are Miss Terry and Miss Jenny.

I bundled the cookies up in some cello bags, placed them in clear pails.  I found the T E A C H E R poem on the internet... changed a few lines to personalize it.

Felt Flowers using Cuttlebug

My latest attempt at something new... making some embellishments using my Cuttlebug and felt pieces.  I'm not sure what fate my mind has in store for these little softies just yet but I wanted to post them sooner than later.

All you do is cut small pieces of felt to fit your die, roll 'em through your diecut machine and voila!  I used the circle Nestibilities here! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome Baby Niederwimmer

Welcome Grant Oliver Niederwimmer!!  He was born March 1, 2010!

My newest addiction addition is knitting!  I can't get enough of it... that's why my paper projects have slacked a bit.  I made this cute little fishie with little baby fingers in mind... oh what fun it will be to play with those flyaway gills. 

I used I'm Here and Bundled in Love SU sets for this project and my Cuttlebug.  I picked up the satin ribbon at Hobby Lobby - they have some great satin ribbon right now by the yard.

Here is the final package!  I hope baby Niederwimmer has lots of fun playing with these gills as I had making them.  I think Nay Nay needs one for her knitted toy collection.

Thanks for stopping by!

Better late than never... it's been awhile since I've posting anything.  I've had some projects just sitting out there waiting, waiting.  I made this card for January's card swap/stamp club.
